can not run Linux ARM 1.6.9 on raspberry pi 7 (wheezy)

Hi guys,

i was excited to see a Linux arm version coming out. Till now i used the old version of 1.0.6 which does not support a lot of things.

I downloaded the package file, but unfortunately i can not run it and i can not find anything on the net on how to resolve it. I even tried latest nightly builds.

I am getting the below error message :

A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:

Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (25.91-b14 mixed mode linux-arm )

Problematic frame:

I appreciate your replies.

Maybe. Maybe not.

In case if you haven't noticed this is an Arduino forum, not a Raspberry Pi forum.

Dear Mr Genius,

if you've read above, the issue could also be with the Experimental version of the arduino ide. On what ground do you exempt the ide ? There are many posts with the ide start up script problems.

Even if it relates to raspberry the developers of this ide should have a look at it to propose a solution.
